I need to be able to get a report out of my table, but iM having trouble getting my head around it.
the table gathers info about age
tabel 'Members'

and policy
Mental Health
Cardiovascular Health
Injury Poisoning
Injury Poisoning

I need to sumurise and total all members in each age bracket
against the policy
-15 ---- Cancer ---- '2'
15-24 -- Cancer --- '3'
25-34 -- Cancer --'6'
etc etc
15 --Mental health -- '2'
25-24 Mental Health --'2'

get the idea
so wahts the best way to do this?

SELECT ageColumnName, COUNT(ageColumnName) AS numPeople, policyColumnName FROM MemberTableName GROUP BY ageColumnName, numPeople, policyColumnName

that would get you started....

for age use.... wouldn't it be easier for you to create a value for a range of ages when the age is submitted in the first place?


if age<15 then
end if

if (age<=15) AND (age<=24) then
end if

you can still store the age of the user in a column like "ageExact" and its age range in a column like "ageRange" (which would make it easier for sql use)... I don't know if that post can help actually, maybe that you already do it and that I didn't get it. I guess the sql statement that wrote A1ien51 will maybe be easier for you to make work properly if you do that first since you'll only have to use a single number for your request (for example, 3 would mean people between 25 and 34).
